Religious difference is not a barrier for familial love, instead it can bring families closer to each other.

Muslim Man Who Visits To His Christian Father's Tomb During Hari Raya Is Showing M'sians That Differences In Religion Can Be Overcome With Love

Religious difference is not a barrier for familial love, instead it can bring families closer to each other.
That is exactly what happened to Putra Rayyan Firdaus Marcellus, who is a Muslim man but his deceased father was a Christian man. Every year during the Aidilfitri celebrations, Putra Rayyan will always make time to visit his father's grave, in this moving story of family bonds reported on mStar.
Putra Rayyan's actions even came under fire by some netizens online. But Putra Rayyan says that the he does not care what the people say, and he will still visit his father's grave.

"Even though we are of different religions, familial relationships will never go away, I still love him the same although our beliefs are different. That's what I want to show through the pictures," he said.

The 35-year-old man also added that his mother, Nora Allim, 70 is also a Christian, but she does not think that differences in religion should get in the way of family.
"My mom does not mind when we hold our Raya open house at her house, and everytime during Raya we always get full support from our family," he said.
According to Malay Mail, Putra Rayyan first embraced Islam when he was 17 years old. In his household, 5 of his siblings are Christian, while only two of them are Muslims.
The man who hails from Tenom, Sabah also said that in Sabah and Sarawak, visiting the graves of parents even though they are of different faith are normal.
Even though there are some netizens who bashed Putera Rayyan's actions, many more supported his actions.
With our government also pressing the need of moderation and the concept of 'Wassatiyah', perhaps Putra Rayyan's actions can be an example for the rest of us.
